ClarkDietrich Finishing Products to be Featured in The New American Homes During 2019 International Builders’ Show

West Chester, Ohio - January 28, 2019 - ClarkDietrich is excited to announce that several products from its finishing products group will be used in the construction of The New American Home® and The New American RemodelTM projects that will be showcased during the 2019 International Builders’ Show® in Las Vegas. Presented by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the model homes will include ClarkDietrich Strait-Flex drywall products as well as a variety of exterior vinyl beads and trims.

The New American Home is the official show home of the annual International Builders' Show. It showcases industry best practices, innovative design concepts, state-of-the-art products and the latest construction techniques. Each year, a new home is unveiled to demonstrate the most noteworthy advancements in home building, allowing industry professionals to glean new ideas that they can replicate within other housing projects.

Little, Sr. Product Manager, ClarkDietrich. “Our Strait-Flex and vinyl trim and beads are the perfect combination to help ensure the long-term integrity of the interior and exterior wall systems.”

For more than 20 years, the Strait-Flex brand has produced a long line of product innovations such as X-Crack, which eliminates ceiling cracks, stick cornerbeads that require no fasteners, Mud-Pro compound applicators that require no daily clean-up and durable patches that quickly correct miss-cut and damaged drywall.

As part of company’s newly created Finishing Products Group, ClarkDietrich offers more than 1,000 vinyl wall and ceiling accessories. All of ClarkDietrich’s vinyl wall and ceiling accessories are made from only the finest ingredients formulated for superior quality, performance and reliability.
